Kurukshetra University Postpones UG, PG Exams Due to Heavy Rains, Revised Schedule Shortly
The undergraduate and postgraduate examinations at Kurukshetra University, which were originally scheduled to commence on July 13, 2023, have been postponed. This decision has been made due to continuous heavy rainfall and severe floods in the Northern part of India. The university administration will soon release new date sheets for the examinations.
Concerned about the inconvenience it may cause to students and parents, the Vice Chancellor of Kurukshetra University, Som Nath Sachdeva, has instructed exam centers not to conduct any examinations until July 13. The Examination Controller, Hukam Singh, stated that the state has been facing chaotic conditions for the past two to three days due to incessant rainfall, resulting in flood-like situations in various villages and districts. Considering these circumstances, the Vice Chancellor has taken the decision to postpone the examinations. The university will announce the new dates for the examinations shortly.
The evening schedule of the exam that was supposed to take place on Monday, as well as the exams scheduled for July 11, have been deferred to July 13 for both the autumn and evening sessions of undergraduate, postgraduate, and engineering courses. Additionally, a new date sheet will be announced for the entrance examinations at Kurukshetra University.
To address the crisis caused by the recent heavy rainfall, the Haryana government has established a helpline number. In case of any issues, individuals can contact the flood helplines 1070, 1077, and 112, as well as the state landline number. The continuous heavy rains have led to the obstruction of numerous roads, which could make it difficult for candidates to reach their designated testing locations. Therefore, in the best interest of the students, the decision to postpone these examinations has been made.
A similar situation has occurred in Delhi, where schools remained closed on both Monday and Tuesday. In Nainital, schools for classes 1 through 12 will be closed from July 10 to 13. This decision was made after the Meteorological Department issued a red alert for July 11 and 12 in the districts of Chamoli, Pauri Garhwal, Pithoragarh, Bageshwar, Almora, Champawat, Nainital, and Udham Singh Nagar in Uttarakhand.
